I’ve always been a big fan of Mediterranean food. It’s full of fresh flavors and virtually everything I love most. Of course, it’s traditionally saturated in olive oil – which I refrain from using. I prefer oil-free for my own digestive health, but you can always modify these recipes to include it if you wish. Everything I’ve included in this bowl is completely gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free and vegan – of course!
I wanted to accommodate as many people as possible and share something that’s truly bursting with flavor and health. I’m absolutely in love with cucumbers and tomatoes so this particular combination is very fresh and won’t weigh you down. That’s what I love most about eating a vegan diet, it’s getting back to the basics and eating more fruits and vegetables.
I also love Kroger and want to give them a huge shoutout for introducing ClickList to my life. Being a homebody that’s short on time, I don’t always have the means to grocery shop in person. With ClickList I’m able to effortlessly order everything I need online/through the Kroger app and pick it up (same-day!) without having to leave the car. Some locations even offer home delivery! It has been a huge time-saver, to say the least. I’m never disappointed with my order and can’t recommend their service enough. Of course, it’s totally free! I thought I would share with those of you that regularly shop at Kroger stores, it’s a must-try.
If you give this recipe a try I would love to hear what you think! Be sure to also snap a photo and tag me @PlantPhilosophy on Instagram using #PlantPhilosophy so I don’t miss seeing your post. I love to leave a comment and reshare my favorite recreations. Thank you very much for taking the time to follow along with my content and make my recipes!

To prepare the kale falafel, follow this recipe and reduce by half. Portioning into 1 inch scoops per bite and baking at 450 F. for 25 minutes. Alternatively, you can air-fry for 400 F for 20 minutes or pan fry over medium heat for 4 minutes on each side.
Wash and cut vegetables as needed, following each recipe separately as linked above.
Assemble with a base of mixed greens. Topped with falafel bites, tabouli, tzatziki, hummus & cucumber slices. I also included a wedge of lemon and some red onion slices.
